She was driving back from a work convention in Milwaukee when she was killed. Bargman worked at Central Illinois Bank Centre.
Frequent customers there say they can't believe what happened to her.
"I was just devastated, I just couldn't believe that it was her. Very sad for her family."
Customers describe Bargman as cheery with a caring personality, and a life that ended much too soon.
